Summary: Default Public NTP Server for Great Britain gives error
unknown host.
Product: openSUSE 10.2
Version: Final
Platform: i386
OS/Version: Linux
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: YaST2
AssignedTo: bnc-team-screening@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: stevegoodey@xxxxxxxxxxx
QAContact: jsrain@xxxxxxxxxx


When setting up a Public NTP Server for a PC in Great Britain the server
automatically offered is gb.pool.ntp.org. But that gives "Server is unreachable
or does not respond properly" error message when the test button is pressed.
Pinging gb.pool.ntp.org gives unknown host. Has been checked on two different
PCs, clean install, dual boot with Windows XP.

Checking with www.pool.ntp.org the correct server address should be
uk.pool.ntp.org


How to get there.

YaST, Network Services, NTP Configuration. In the Automatically Start NTP
Deamon select during boot, continue past the warning message. In the NTP Server
Configuration, next to the server Address box press select, click on Public NTP
Server. Country shows Great Britain, Public NTP Servers box shows
gb.pool.ntp.org (Great Britain)

My first bug report, hope this is ok.
